We are the forgotten people’ – Winnipeg Free Press

This is a story about forgotten people.

KeKiNan Centre is an assisted living centre for Indigenous seniors that has been operating since 1991. Lauded as the first of its kind, KeKiNan (“our home” in Cree) was created in response to the growing number of seniors who needed an affordable home and had specific needs — such as staff who could speak Indigenous languages.

For 20 years, KeKiNan existed as a 31-unit, single-floor building for 65 years old-plus “independent” Indigenous residents at 100 Robinson Ave. in Winnipeg’s North End.

In 2010, KeKiNan expanded, adding a 28-unit, three-story building next door (102 Robinson Ave.) as “assisted living” for those 55 years old-plus. The new building came with promises to provide culturally-specific programming, such as ceremonies, feasts, and staff fluent in Indigenous languages.
